What is innovation?

Headkayse has been chosen as a "champion for change" by Honda to help kick off their competition encouraging start-up innovators.

Our focus was always on a very tangible solution for riders - to create a flexible and durable cycle helmet. However the path to create the world's first flexible, multi-impact helmet was far from obvious and required plenty of imagination and determination.

It was eye-opening to realise that the helmet I was using, which has taken the odd drop and knock, was not as safe as I had assumed, and would probably not pass the EU safety standard, EN-1078!
